Colorful Little Squares!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

 

Don'tcha just love Kraft? 

If you use it with colorful paper & embellies it really makes your design "Pop". 

 For extra added touches I...

...used paper with colorful squares.
...topped them with square shaped bling.
...and finished it off with some colorful trim.


I sooo love Spring! The hot air balloon on the card reminds me of sunny days outdoors! I'm linking this up to the Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Spring" challenge.

I've also been wanting to play with The Kraft Journal for a while. I'm linking this up to their "It's Hip to be Square" challenge. (such a fun title for a challenge) :)


Card Supplies:
Kraft Cardstock (Stampin Up!); Patterned Paper & Hot Air Balloon Sticker (Echo Park - Sweet Summertime); Ribbon Trim (American Crafts); Blue Gemstone Stickers (Martha Stewart Crafts); Pop Dots (Glue Dots)

The balloon stands out wonderfully against the kraft paper! I love the way the squares (paper and gems) carry on the theme of the square card.
